You can only play the game using the app on a mobile phone - it won't work on your computer's browser. All you have to do is open the app, click the pink button on the right side of the screen and bam, it'll be there for you to play. To honor April Fools' Day, Google added Ms. Pac-Man to Google Maps. Let us know what you think in the comments. After you hit the directions icon the Ms. Pac-Man button on Google Maps go away. From there, you're in for your traditional Pac-man goodness!

It has been brought in for April Fool's Day - so make the most of it while you can.

In 2015, Google offered a similar Maps-based Pac-Man game for April Fool's Day but this one is MS. Pac-Man (one for the ladies!). You can also sign in to your Google account to save your top score on a leaderboard and share it with friends.

Brent crude and West Texas Intermediate oil prices are rising
In the United States, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up 34 cents, or 0.7 percent, at $48.71 a barrel. Crude-oil stockpiles rose a less-than-expected 900,000 barrels last week by the government's count.

Once pressed, you'll be able to watch in wonder as your current location gets transformed into a playable level of Ms Pac-Man with your local streets acting as the game board. Instead, the updated app puts you in a random spot somewhere in the world.

Of course, in this version of the game, it's impossible to sort easily preict and memorize where to go and when ― because there's a virtually endless number of different maps to play on. Although, it seems like Apple users has the option to choose the location. It has a history of getting involved in fun and games, like last year's gag when the Street View "pegman" was dressed in disco attire.

Controlling Pac-Man is simple - tap on the up, down, left and right arrows to move the iconic chomping yellow circle through the streets to collect dots and cherries.
